I agree with you! I follow LTB cases very carefully because my goal is to work for tenants in a government legal aid position in a little under two years.

These cases of landlords taking months to evict are nonsense and simply the fault of the landlord. Before you become a landlord make sure you know the rules and the laws. If you are a a a n, n, n, n, nervous type, don't r, r, r represent yourself at the b, b, b, board. S-st-stu-stut-stutt-stutte-stutter-stuttering doesn't go over well.

Exactly. Being a landlord is a very profitable business and landlords have to know both their rights and their responsibilities. If you are clueless, don't be so cheap to rep yourself and fall flat on your face like this landlord obviously did.

In other words, don't serve an N8 for non-payment of rent or you will be laughed at and sent back to drawing board! This landlord had only themselves to blame. :lol:

Being a landlord is a very profitable business

- a common myth. I have been a landlord in the GTA for over 20 years. Trust me, being a landllord is NOT a very profitable business.

landlords have to know both their rights and their responsibilities.

-be thankful most of them dont. If they did, they would not have become landlords in the first place (removing many thousands of rentals from the market)

Politicians and tenants DEPEND on uneducated landlords to supply private rentals.

Greg wrote:Not surprised however this news report is extremely sketchy, no real details to explain the time lapses and by all indications the landlord was not at all aware of what was happening at her property. I would guess that she was slow to issue paper work and probably gave the tenant numerous free rides. In addition she likely was not represented at board hearings.

This is a very common story regarding inexperienced landlords. They give tenants the benefit of the doubt too often and do not process the LTB paper work as diligently as they should.
Based on the story it appeared to be a very simple eviction which likely took as long as it did due more to landlord inexperience than board favoritism toward the tenant. I say this because the landlord never bothered to inspect her property the entire time she had the tenant.

However the story is very much lacking in details.

Even with inexperience, even with being completely new to this business, this kind of treatment should not be allowed. It should be as simple as kicking them out and charging them through the legal system for damaging your property. You should have every right to conduct yourself in a normal fashion. It is the hand that is dealt to us that is shady.
The purpose of Law is to limit and contain harm-to-others, provide freedom and establish right and wrong.

Tenant law established the legal right to be irresponsible, damage property without consequence, lie, steal, misrepresent & spend tax payer’s dollars, free legal counsel, a biased trial system and to be lazy.

What’s left for us landlords? A broken law and.... oh yea, the bill...

No. This clearly an aberration.

You have some green as hell young landlord new to the industry who doesn't have a clue what they are doing. They mess everything even making the tenant confused! The tenant doesn't even know if they can stay or leave and decide to rely on the law to decide before making a decision.

The young green as hell landlord comes to some hearings with big time over-confidence thinking they know it all because they are the Yuppie up and comers who can wing it and succeed. This guy or girl did NO homework on the issue, fumbled the ball, so things are set for them to have time to learn a few things about the RTA next time they are back.

Green, inexperienced, young Yuppie landlords who think they can make a quick buck and they can go before the Tribunal and flash those pearly whites and tight a$$es to mesmerize the adjudicator......and they whine when it doesn't work!

Great job Landlord and Tenant Board! You won't be swayed by some green as hell Yuppy no-nothings relying on their good looks and sexy bodies to slam their honest tenant!

Umm really Jeff?? Where in God's name did you come up with that last reply?? I still do not understand your childish attitude and think this site is a joke to write your Mother Hubbard stories and replies. :roll:

I agree with Greg, go watch some TV. :lol:
We need change, but to create change we need to all work together and not against each other!!
